Interview Details

I stopped by my university's career fair with the assumption that talking to Bloomberg would be more informational, but it was a mini interview. They began asking programming questions and reviewing data structures that I had learned about.

The interviewer was specifically interested in c++ even when I told him that I was comfortable with java. The interviewer focused on Data Structures and Algorithms specifically.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied at a career fair in the fall and was called for an on-campus interview in the spring. After the first round, they called me for a second but as they had no slots left, they said they will schedule it in a couple of weeks when they come to campus again. I did not hear from them since. When they came to campus again, I asked about scheduling the second round. I was told that they were done with interns for the summer. Overall, communication, even within themselves, was very poor.

    First round interview for internship was pretty good. They seemed like they really wanted to know that you knew a thing or two about Bloomberg Terminal and their other products.

    Two senior engineers interviewed me. One person first looked through my resume and asked some questions about it. Then he gave me a binary tree problem which I spent most of the time solving it. The other person didn't speak totally. After I finished the problem they answered my questions.

    Interview Details

    Met a few company reps at a career fair at my school and a reception the night before. Had an interview on campus (my school) which was a 1-hour long tech interview. My interviewers unfortunately were very rude and disrespectful. There weren't any soft or behavioral questions.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    This is a phone interview, it lasted about 25 minutes. First, they just go through your resume and ask you about your past experiences. The most difficult part always comes last. They will ask a little financial equation questions and some really technical questions, one by one. It is too technical for me then.
